After a whirlwind visit to Massachusetts, attending my opening reception and gallery talk, a visit to Amherst and the western part of the state (during one of the most beautiful times of the year), I am just now coming down from the high!
Originally I had shipped 35 pieces and before the official opening the gallery called and asked if I could bring more work. They had already sold pieces off of their website and they plan to sell directly off the walls. The show runs until December 24, and with more work they will be able to replenish to prevent wall space from looking empty.
The press release explains the motivation and inspiration behind these small works and my connection to the Thorne Miniature Rooms at the Art Institute.

As a result of my visit to Boston and Amherst, I just completed 5 new miniature works that will be included during the holiday show season.
